The girls improved to 14-0 overall.

In boys singles play, Trevor Gotkowski overpowered his foe, 6-0, 6-0; Nathan Slocum lost, 1-6, 3-6; and Drew Adsit won 6-4, 6-0.

At the doubles line, Tyler Hill and Matthew Scott won, 6-3, 6-1, while Wyndham Laye and Avery Andrews fell, 1-6, 6-7.

Moore said the teams are continuing to focus on improving as the regular season winds down.

“The things that are working for the girls, their serves and downstrokes, are continuing to work for them,” Moore said. “The boys are continuing to improve their play especially at the net. Also, we’re very pleased with the progress our boys No. 2 doubles team is making.”

Today’s games are scheduled to start around 4:30 p.m.
